Rob Ford plans to attend Sunday’s Bills game in Toronto

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is known for many things, including his decision to wear a tie emblazoned with outdated logos of NFL teams on the day he finally admitted to smoking crack.

That’s not Ford’s only connection to football. He is fond of wearing a Toronto Argonauts jersey with his name on the back, including when denying allegations of sexual impropriety at the workplace by pointing out that he’s married and has plenty to eat at home, and was a high school football coach before becoming making all of our lives a bit more amusing by entering the political arena.

Ford’s love of the gridiron has him planning a visit to Toronto’s Rogers Centre on Sunday to watch as the Bills and Falcons do battle in the city that elected him to its highest municipal office. While Ford has become a well-known figure in recent weeks, Bills coach Doug Marrone had to be told about Ford’s crack smoking when he was asked about Ford’s behavior during a press conference.

“Really? Well I hope that he can find a way to better himself. Last time I checked that’s illegal, so hopefully he can find a way to help himself,” Marrone said, via the Toronto Sun. “I say that for anyone, you don’t have to be the mayor, you could be a guy who is down the street. There are a lot of issues and a lot of challenges in life and I hope that people turn themselves to get help if they think they have a problem.”

While he’s currently dealing with an implosion of a pretty grand scale himself, we’re guessing that Falcons coach Mike Smith won’t be trying to get an audience with Ford to discuss crisis management strategies.

  1. You would think this moron would want to stay out of the limelight for a little while. I just don’t think he can help himself. I wouldn’t be surprised if he got a DUI on the way to the game or after it.

  2. As a resident of Toronto, and huge Bills fan,I am not not sure which is the bigger clown show. Mayor Ford or this ridiculous travesty of the Bills playing in Toronto

  3. I think it’s a pretty amazing accomplishment to fake your death and become mayor of Toronto. Chris Farley should be commended.

  4. Hopefully there’s a Dave & Buster’s in Toronto. The Falcons don’t need any serious trouble before the game, and that starts by avoiding any mayoral events.

  5. Rob Ford is the man. A populist right leaning mayor who spanked the hard left wing nanny staters that pushed Toronto to the brink of bankruptcy and suffacated it with a juggernaut of bans and bylaws

    I suspect the anti-Ford comments here are from socialist fools that should find another sport to follow other than American football. Aren’t you clowns part of the Toronto left wing elitists that hate Americans after all?

    Rob Ford for mayor 2014! Lets get it done

  6. Is there anything greater than this guy’s off the wall exploits over the last 2-3 weeks? How tremendous was his running across the room and almost tackling that poor woman? Or, how about him making the drinking signs with his hands behind the back of that council person? Best ever!

  7. Look at all the sheep, believing everything the liberal media is spewing.

    This man exposed the socialist members of council, stealing taxpayer money and it’s been a witch hunt since then.

    Now, they’re petrified he’s going to win again, and he will. Ford more years!

    You are what’s wrong with the world. Not because of what you think but why you think it. People who identify themselves as left or right are people who can’t think for them selves. You’re simply a puppet. Toronto left wing elitists? Who talks like that? Get real buddy!
